knitting gramps

21 May

just thought i’d let you know that i have knitting genes… check out my grandpa (age 83)



on 2,5 mm needles!




i’ll never complain about my big hands and thin needles again 🙂

 he’s been knitting more lately since there’s not so many fish nets to mend anymore, and mostly when he gets bored and when watching tv,

digging into my grandmas old stash.

resulting in these 5 pairs of mittens and 24 pairs of socks:

    I think your granpa is excellent, and much more productive than me! I am half way down a second sock the twin of which I started last August – shamed into action, must finish that sock!

    Looks very neat too, well done Granpa :o)

    Well done Grandpa, he is an inspiration for those of us who want to learn how to knit socks.
